Haiko Oosterbaan (1972) is arranging the world by focusing on returning shapes in our landscape and photographing these. Often these shapes have been formed by human intervention, but humans do not play a prominent part in the images.
He is concentrating on the interface that results from the interplay between nature and architecture. He frames this and creates quiet through balancing elements. Every image is deliberate from the right angle, f-stop, to the correct lens.
Although his projects start intuitively he sets a strict standard for the quality of his photographs when delving into the subject matter. The composition is dictated by the definite lines of the man-made landscape. He translates this into a clean composition and always considers the vantage point well. In this way he works toward a series or typology.
